After six successful weeks at the National Trust’s Newark Park (“a triumph of sensitive and visionary curation, fading grandeur and decaying splendour”) TOW13 comes to Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum. The exhibition will be showing works of the forty six selected artists, some with new or site specific work, but all re-imagined for the museum site following its significant new build and re-development. The themes of making and materiality will resonate strongly with Cheltenham’s important Arts & Crafts collections and work will be exhibited in public gallery spaces, projection areas, the roof terrace and within existing collections. Lyn Cluer Coleman and Sarah Goodwin are curating an exhibition that crosses a wide spectrum of art disciplines; from contemporary portraiture to cgi video, from feather structures to concrete still life and ceramic tableaux, from digital tapestry to complex drawing structures, from site specific architectural investigations to ephemeral sculptures. 
Three awards will be announced at the private view on Friday 11 October. On Saturday 12 October eight artists* will be on site discussing their working practice from 10.30am to 4.30pm. These Artists Talks are free and open to all but numbers will be limited according to space. * David Hamilton, Paula MacArthur, Rob Miller, Kim Francis, Nigel Massey, Tracey Rowledge, Wycliffe Stutchbury (plus another to be announced).
